#1Slacker_057Posted 7/6/2013 3:51:27 PM
ive played r/b/y/s/g/c/rby/e/hg/fr a few times through each ( cant really count r/b/y because i never traded to find out), never resetting to find them and not counting the red gary or the odd eggs i havnt seen one.

just curious if anyone out there is i the same boat o.O
My problem is, if its something i wont use or just dont like i dont think id be satisfied if i saw one
=(

How often do you use repels? Maybe that could be part of the problem.

I have never encountered a shiny in the past three days or so.

I know someone close.
They saw 2 shinies ever and that's it.

I do remember I saw sparkles in Black 2 and I thought "ooh my 1st Black 2 Shiny?!" and nope... it was an N Pokémon and I was like "AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGH!!! Oh well still cool..."

Oh and also you played GSC and the remakes?
Then you saw a Shiny Gyarados. So you saw one.

Back in SoulSilver (my first game), I saw a shiny Teddiursa.
Now, this is when I still thought you needed to damage a Pokemon to catch it. So I attacked it, and...
"A critical hit!"

Later, in the post-game of White 2, I had the strange urge one night to go back into the Chargestone Cave. Right after I walked in, I met a Shiny Joltik.
She's a Galvantula now... Darn shame she has Unnerve and a crappy Nature.

Don't assume things. Shinies are extremely rare, and no one uses Repels enough to make them significantly less rare. I bred half the Pokedex with a Shiny Charm and and a Japanese Ditto without finding one (I already had some through other methods, though.)

I've seen one shiny waaaaaaay back in the original G/S but I was too young and ignorant to understand, so I knocked it out.

I've never seen another one in the wild since.

FML.
